The object of Payday FreeCell solitaire is to move all the cards from the table to the four foundation stacks at the top right half of the screen. Each foundation stack must begin with the Ace of the matching suit. New cards of the same suit are added to the stack in ascending sequence: A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K. You will always earn a token for every card you place in the foundation stacks. You will also see some special bonus "scratcher" cards on the table. When you remove these cards from the table, you may receive special bonus tokens. When you sort all 52 cards into the correct foundation stacks in the correct order, you win the game; then you keep all your bonus tokens and receive a Jackpot Spin!

A letter goes along with each number to help you find the numbers on your card more quickly. All the shuffles and deals of the cards are completely random. Unlike First Class Solitaire, it is almost always possible to remove all the cards from the table in Payday Free Cell solitaire. It may not feel like it, and you may get stuck or run out of legal moves, but the absolutely unsolvable hands occur less than 0.01% of the time. Replaying the same hand in a different way may allow for completing the game. The more you play, the better you get. The better you get, the more free cell solitaire games you complete and the more tokens you win!

Using only the cards at the bottom of the columns, there are three ways that game play can be started:
  • Any Ace at the bottom of a column should be moved up to its foundation stack.
  • Any other card may be placed on an alternate color card that is one value higher than that card.
  • Any card at the bottom of a column may be moved up to a Free Cell.

Here are some additional pointers designed to help you become a more advanced Payday Free Cell solitaire player.

Avoid building stacks on low numbered cards because you will probably need them sooner than you think.

Move any Aces at or near the bottom of the columns first.

Try to place cards in the Free Cells that you can easily put back onto the playfield.

Once you place a card in the foundation stack, you can't put it back into play.

There are times when you must manually move cards to the foundation stacks.

You don't get bonus points for using less moves or finishing quickly. In other words, take your time.

To reveal a specific card on the Free Cell solitaire table, right click on it.

Try not to fill up the top four Free Cells right away as it leaves less room for moving cards around.

Don't worry about chasing the bonus cards. Focus on winning the game by moving the cards to the foundation stacks first, and the bonus cards will come naturally.

Bonus cards are divided into four parts. Click on any part to scratch it off and get the number of points (or tokens) shown. The four bonus cards are additions to the regular 52 cards in the deck and have no suit or face value, other than the number of tokens earned.

Payday FreeCell • Re: Disappearing Ranks

By camprmkquads » May 25th, 2015, 6:07 pm

If I leave/get booted out of private chat, I am unable to get back into a private conversation. Am I the only one with this problem? It happens only with payday free cell. I have tried leaving the room and returning, leaving POGO then returning, shutting off computer and returning, and also the person I was private chatting this can not return to private chat with me.

This wasn't an intentional change and it's not the same for every player and badge. It appears that the older badges (from back when Pogo used to end the badge week a bit earlier) have reverted to the older ending time.

I've adjusted my personal badge ending time to no later than 7 Pacific time and that's worked so far. Since I know I'm likely to lose my badge by waiting too long, I'm inclined to jump on them sooner.

I have had the same problem on 2 different badges, and am unable to get a reply from POGO. I thought that we had until midnight on Tuesdays (I'm EST). But, lately, the out of time button is appearing earlier on Tuesday. I got the "Out of Time" error on make over madness at 11:30, and on this game at 11:00. Everyone just says "finish your badges earlier," but believe it or not, life outside of Pogo does get in the way. I just think whatever time they decide needs to be the time so people know for sure.

Pogo added ranks to the game some time after the game was released. Only games that you won after ranks were added count toward your ranking progress.

Payday FreeCell • Re: FULL SCREEN

By foreversapphire » May 18th, 2015, 2:53 pm

I third that vote for Full Screen. Pleeaase. I am so glad to see players reporting their low scores. To me, that is really what its all about. Could we have rewards for low score? I too had an 84 the other day. Before that it was an 87. Love Payday Freecell. Thanks Pogo !!

I'm curious to who has had the quickest number of moves to win. So far, my shortest game has been 105 moves. Just wondering . . . .

Payday FreeCell • Game I won counted as a loss.

By sissyannr » April 18th, 2015, 11:03 pm

I was just playing Payday Free Cell and won 3 games and went to look at my stats. It said I played 3 games but lost the current game. The screen where it says to play again indicates that I won the game and that I removed 56 of 56 cards (52 regular cards and 4 scratch cards) but no jackpot spin and my stats said I lost the current game. I should have a winning streak of 2903. I did a screen print that shows the screen that indicates that I won along with my stats indicating that I have 1 loss currently. Has anyone else had this happen to them? Is there anything I can do to get this corrected? Thank you.

Part 2: I have contacted EA Help 4 times now and was just informed that they are unable to correct my statistics and that I have to post the issue to the forum to get it corrected. I attached a screen print to one of the ticket numbers showing that I had won the game and my statistics indicating that I had lost the current game. Since EA help doesn't seem to be able to help with this I hope that someone reading this might be able to provide some assistance. Thanks.

Part 3: After contacting "EA Help" I have come to the conclusion that they are not of much help. I'm sure they mean well. The following is an excerpt from our conversation on how to get my statistics corrected.
"I have shared this screenshot with specialist team. But we are not able to correct this. I am sharing a link with you to update your browser. Most of the time it will fix this issue."

Payday FreeCell • Out of time?

By moya9559 » April 15th, 2015, 4:16 am

I was working on the personal challenge Ace Marks the Spot and still had a few more to go, but it says I am out of time. Why would the time run out on this badge earlier than the other weekly and personal badges?
